Running felt very comfortable - felt actually like the pace was faster than last weeks - so a tad surprised that it wasnt, there was a few more hills but I dont think the elevation is correct above.
Made some massive brain farts, on the first 2 controls then later in the course. A good runner would have cleared this course easily in time. I should have finished my route which only dropped 4 within the 45 minutes but for the first two controls, then making a strategically very very very bad route choice adding a few hundo m to route plan then reading map upsidedown and searching out of bounds rather than a car park whoops... what a muppet!
all in all though great day for a run and felt very good particularly given how sore my legs are and how unhealthy my diet (food and drinks have been for last week and a half) - surprised I didn't have a heart attack...
Looks like ave heart rate and max have come down a bit too which is good even though was striding out a bit in sections.
Same knee same problems - blah, though surg knee might have had issues after it was run into a metal pole early this week, but my knee was rock solid today.
Definitely got a blister going on so these shoes might be already feeling the wear! darn. Thicker socks again.
also the rego system is officially cool - every SI card which is in the eventor system is on this, so u walk past table pay for race and sign a form, punch a SI reader on the next table and say category - job done. Probably the most efficient registration I have seen at any sporting event I have ever been too.
